      "Works ONLY for Lion and Mountain Lion"

      June 09, 2013   |   By RogerKatz

      Version: TotalFinder 1.4.10

      Pros

      Convenient application.

      Cons

      CNET incorrectly says version 1.4.10 works for Snow Leopard. The Developer's website says otherwise.

      "Essential addition"

      September 27, 2012   |   By mattelfesso

      Version: TotalFinder 1.4.2

      Pros

      Tabbed Finder reduces clutter
      Very intuitive
      Dragging files across tabbed works as expected
      Extra optional tweaks (e.g. show hidden files)

      Cons

      Nothing significant

      Summary

      I've been using TotalFinder for two years now and it has become an essential part of OS X for me. The developer has been good about keeping the app up to date with each new incarnation of the Mac OS and it has worked well for me from Snow Leopard through Mountain Lion. One of the first things I do when upgrading my OS is to make sure that I reinstall TotalFinder. I have had it crash on rare occasions, such as with file transfers across wonky networks. It then it kicks you back out to the regular Finder (ick). Not a big deal. I dragged its icon to the top of my Finder Windows, as a shortcut on those rare occaisions, and it relaunches instantly.

      This really ought to be built in to the OS. Until then, there is TotaFinder.

      "Where have you been all my life?"

      November 05, 2011   |   By honeebee914

      Version: TotalFinder 1.3.1

      Pros

      This app is phenomenal. I use it at home and at work. The feature that most impresses me is a feature that revolutionised web browsers 5 years ago: tabbed browsing. The tabbed finder windows are probably my favourite feature. They behave just like browser tabs, so utilising them is very easily intuited. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

      Cons

      Very rarely on the spectrum of sometimes, the app can get buggy, and requires a Finder relaunch. Consistent updates seem to address these issues right away.

      "Fine example of KISS - keep it simple, stupid!!"

      June 06, 2011   |   By supayne

      Version: TotalFinder 1.1.13

      Pros

      Easy to learn & logical for non-techies! No gliches or crashes, which for a "finder" app, is unusual! Tabs are a great time-saver!!

      Cons

      None perceived!!

      "Just what I was looking for"

      March 22, 2011   |   By mattelfesso

      Version: TotalFinder 1.1.9

      Pros

      Lots of options for tweaking your Finder. The tabbed Finder windows alone is enough to make this a great addition.

      Cons

      I've had the app crash on rare occasions in complicated network settings. Its a little less snappy than the native Finder. but this is imperceptible on fast systems.

      Summary

      I've been waiting for Apple to create tabbed Finder windows ever since the concept was introduced in web browsers. This application fulfills this need nicely. It also has very predictable behavior, e.g. you can drag the tabs to reorder them, and you can drag tabs from one window to another.

      With dozens of additional little tweaks and features this application was named appropriately. This application is still being actively developed which is nice because updates and bug fixes come out fairly regularly. It looks like the upcoming Lion release will be a challenge with lots of bugs to iron out, but the developer is actively working on these according to his website.

      "Used app for several days, has already sped up searchs"

      January 07, 2011   |   By smithlw

      Version: TotalFinder 1.1.3

      Pros

      Multiple windows useful, has already sped up my searches and navigations significantly. Simple and easy so far to use, have not got to grips with advanced features yet but this should make the application even more powerful

      Cons

      Not been using it for long enough, just takes some getting use to initially after more use it should come more natural

      Summary

      Excellent advanced search function and has all I need, better than the Mac finder, but that has been emasulated over the years by lazy and visionless sofwear writers at Apple

      "Very cool!"

      January 05, 2011   |   By mattelfesso

      Version: TotalFinder 1.1.3

      Pros

      Display multiple Finder windows as tabs in a single window.
      The behavior of tabs is just like you'd expect.
      Drag a file's icon over a tab to activate it, and drop it in the new location.
      A dozen ways to tweak the behavior of Finder windows further.

      Cons

      Switching tabs is not instantaneous. It takes about a 1/10th of a sec. on my MacPro.

      Summary

      A very nice way to clean up Finder window clutter. Apple should learn from these guys.

      "Fabulous idea; poor implementation"

      December 21, 2010   |   By ezramiller

      Version: TotalFinder 1.1.3

      Pros

      II love it! Great features. Time saver. Totally cool but it made my Mac sick

      Cons

      Twice the system crashed -- you know, when the screen grays out and a message comes up to restart. I am sure you will appreciate that that is pretty rare for a Mac. Also the system ran extremely sluggishly with TotalFinder installed.

      Summary

      After I uninstalled it, system performance returned and I have had no further crashes. Have you had any experiences or reports like this? Any sugggestions as to what to so? It is a shame because it has such great features. I hope the developer fixes it.

      "Love it, Love it, Love it"

      December 21, 2010   |   By techlavie

      Version: TotalFinder 1.1.3

      Pros

      Same finder interface.
      Easy to use.
      Easy to understand.
      The keyboard shortcuts to reveal the finder tabs is great, no more clicking the finder icons on the dock.

      Cons

      It crashed only twice in the last month, but restored quickly and nicely.
      ( I know the developer is fixing and improving it all the time ).

      Summary

      It make life easier !
